Menai Bridge showing heritage elements and a bridge

The Menai Bridge connects the Isle of Anglesey and the mainland of Wales across the Menai Strait. The world-famous wrought iron suspension bridge offers stunning views over the Snowdonia mountain range to the west and Anglesey to the north.

Recognised as one of North Wales’ most significant points of interest, the Menai Bridge is a Grade 1 World Heritage Site dating back to 1826. The bridge has provided inspiration for a passage in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, as well as the famous Welsh poem, englyn.

A suspension bridge of this scale had never been built before, making it one of the most impressive structures of its time. Because of the tall sailing ships that passed up the Strait, 100 feet of space was required under the main span of the bridge, making it one of the largest structures of its kind.

Sixteen massive chains hold up 579 feet of road surface between the two limestone towers: the bridge is a truly impressive sight to behold from the banks of the strait and to travel across it is an exhilarating experience.

The Menai Bridge makes it easy to reach Anglesey Island, which is a fabulous destination to be enjoyed by all ages. There are many beautiful beaches on the island, and one of the loveliest is Lligwy Beach, situated just 12 miles from the Menai Bridge.

The Menai Bridge is more than just a way to reach Anglesey Island from the mainland, it is an experience in itself. The impressive structure of the bridge, juxtaposed with the savage beauty of the snowy mountain range and water surrounding it, make the Menai Bridge a justifiably popular point of interest in North Wales.
